Yesterday it rained all day, sometimes downpouring. We need the rain, even though it turns my back yard into a dog-plowed sea of mud. But we did not need the temps to plummet below 32 while rain still fell.
1. What we awoke to this morning was around 4" of white fluffy stuff on top of an inch or so of sleet. Yet it is so unusual down here, it is easy to appreciate its beauty.
5. The new Federal Dietary Guidelines (shouldn't that mean they take LESS of OUR hard earned money?) are out. This time around, cholesterol is good (yay, more eggs!), sugar is evil (well, over-consuming it is a bad idea anyway),eat more plants and less meat (yes, but their reasoning is stupid, touting its lower environmental impact...pesticides anyone?), and the best news of all, your cuppa java is GOOD ! Even if you have 5 a day!
